Life as a Bangor Student
“Student Life” is what students get up to once they start University. From the moment you open the door to your new home at halls of residence or the moment you register on your course... your Student Life is under way.
In the top 10 in the UK for student satisfaction!
Bangor has been rated amongst the top 10 universities in the UK for student satisfaction (NSS 2017) and its size and friendly nature enables students to quickly settle in to university life.
The university’s location, between the Snowdonia mountains and the sea, means that there are a wealth of outdoor activities right on our doorstep. And, as all of our clubs and societies are free to join, there are plenty of opportunities for you to get out and about and get involved.
Help and support
When you arrive at Bangor you will be greeted by your Peer Guide, a second or third year student who has been assigned to help you settle-in and find your way around. Other student support services include dyslexia, disability, counselling and money support.
Studying at Bangor
But being at University isn’t just about having fun, you’ll also be busy with your studies.
You can also take part in the Bangor Employability Award which offers opportunities for students to gain the skills and experiences employers are looking for.
